The only reason misperception like 9/73 is underrated exists is because it is perpetuated by people who feel the need to blather on about it,the level at which the music of the GD is examined and the intelligence of the people who examine it leave little room for such stupidity.I feel since I am not a fucking moron,I can evaluate the performances on an individual basis and not be effected by past or future performances,or the opinion of others.As for how Hamza El Din playing a hand drum and singing a simple Egyptian folk song equates to adding a saxophone and trumpet in a live setting to the complex compositions of an improvising,screaming "rock" band, that is lost on me.

There you go again, if you're such an intelligent musicologist why wouldn't you highlight the William and Mary 9/11/73 "Let me Sing > WRS > Let it Grow" with Joe Ellis and Martin Fierro in your notes? You call these "intelligent" notes? WTF > Me & My Uncle, Black Peter with some real nice vocals and good drumming?

9/11-A very potent Morning Dew and rockin' Sugar Mag.
9/12-Let it Grow with horns.
9/15-Eyes and Let it Grow with horns.
9/17-Me & My Uncle,an odd really slow Loose Lucy,Let it Grow with horns.
9/21-Black Peter with some real nice vocals and good drumming,PITB and Let it Grow with horns.
9/26-Brown Eyed,PITB,both Eyes and Let it Grow with horns.

"As for how Hamza El Din "equates" to adding a saxophone and trumpet is lost on me"

"lost on you" is exact, never said "equates" the written word is "inventive", and no i won't begin to wax on and compare the different music stylings.

WTF exactly is wrong with you? All this bullshit negativity and hatefullness that you spew around this board? If you don't like someone or their post's, let it go.

Now stick to your previous commitment and BTFO, putz!

Not agreeing with your opinion is neither negative nor hateful.Any further discussion would be pointless due to your poor reading comprehension and utter lack of any real knowledge or understanding of the music in question.

It's worth noting that Kochman is unable to provide his own reviews of these shows. My guess is that he has never bothered listening to them...

Hey Cliff, where's your list. I thought you would have one for Fall '73 - that's really the reason I posted. I didn't think it would get ugly but it did. I really just wanted to know people's opinions.

It's interesting to note that the few negative comments regarding these performances mostly focus on the lack of quality recordings.

I'm not promoting reviews here, but believe that folks should trust their own judgement when evaluating various performances and recordings, trust your instinct.

Just sayin..

It's not your fault that Kochman is a douchebag, Max.

I'm afraid that I don't have much to add here on the "horns" tour. In spite of Kochman's absurd statement about these being "underrated" shows, this tour is pretty much a black hole.

In spite of a very few compelling passages, with the exception of 9/11 (a dynamite performance that I'd score at 98-99 pts) and 9/21 (a decent effort that might go 94 pts), the music from this tour is barely listenable...
